Though two Catholic organizations with a pro-LGBT message were excluded from exhibiting at the World Meeting of Families, a commercial exhibit that was provided space offered a unique and creative pro-LGBT message.
The Irish Times reported:
“Car maker Skoda has used the pope’s visit, and his use of four of its cars in Dublin and Knock this weekend, to put a specially commissioned stained glass windowed Skoda Karoq on display. . .
“Artist Evan Connon said the stained glass depicted 17 couples to celebrate the family. The images included a same-sex couple.
” ‘We wanted to show the modern car to a modern family in a modern Ireland,’ said Kealey.”
I had to see it for myself, so I searched it out in the exhibit hall, and found what looks to be not one, but two images of same-sex couples. The photo below shows a male couple with two small children in the left window. In the smaller window on the right, it looks to be like two women dancing together. All other images on the car showed families with one parent with short hair and in pants, and one parent with long hair and in a skirt or dress. These were the only images that showed two short-haired figures in pants together, and two long-haired figures in dresses together.
